What do I think?
I’ve been quite a fan of Doctor Who mainly since David Tennant came into the role – he has truly been superb. But his reign is coming to an end and so a replacement is needed. But I don’t know Matt Smith. Just from a short interview on the BBC last night, it’s not enough to form any kind of opinion on what he will be like as the next Doctor. Unfortunately, that hasn’t stopped many others on forums from doing the same. A lot of it has been quite nasty too.
The best thing to do is wait. Wait until next year and form an opinion then once he’s in character and has a couple of shows under his belt. To lambast him before then is simply infantile.
